Description:
1. Headlines (00:00-00:22)
2. In the second Easter edition of the BBC Caribbean Report we continue our regional trek to examine how similar and indeed how different Easter is celebrated in the Caribbean. Although church membership is declining in Barbados Easter remains a major religious festival with packed congregations. Anglican Bishop Rufus Brome and Methodist Preacher and Directory of Youth Edward Williams are interviewed. Bertrand Niles reports (00:23-03:58)
3. The majority of Amerindians in Guyana have been exposed to the Catholic Missions set up centuries ago, therefore, many have adopted christianity as their faith. Does Easter have any other special meaning to these Amerindians? Desiree Fox, Lecturer in Amerindian Studies, University of Guyana is interviewed (03:59-08:38)
4. What is Easter like in the Leeward Islands? (08:39-10:06)
5. In Trinidad and Tobago people are free to observe or not observe the Easter celebrations. Journalist Indrani Rampersad is interviewed (10:07-12:55)
6. In Havana the State Television and Radio have been promoting the Easter weekend as being full of sport and music for the people of Cuba. The activities were intended to replace the religious Easter weekend which is not officially recognised by the government. However, churches of all denominations held services for who wanted to attend. Rosie Hayes reports (12:56-15:17)
